In Study 1 you will use a pendulum of fixed length and vary the mass to determine whether the period of a pendulum depends on the mass of the bob at the end of the string. In Study 2 you will use a fixed mass and change the length of the pendulum to determine the relationship between the pendulum length and the period of the pendulum. In Study 3 you will use your simple pendulum to determine the value of g, the acceleration of gravity.
